Xerox corporation selected my Pork Cut Chart and related literature for their 2010 calendar which is hanging on the right side of our fridge above. Pretty cool and I got some free ink for winning the art contest.
On the left is the calendar Will made last year that has photos from our farm. He printed that on the Xerox printer and we had it bound ($1 each) in town to use as give outs. To print the actual calendar months Will use Apple’s iCal application on the Macintosh. The pictures were printed as a separate pass on the backs of the calendar month sheets.
Pork Cut Calendar
We have had a Xerox Phaser 8560DN double-sided color printer through their free color printer program for almost three years now and been very pleased with the printer and the program. The way one gets a free color printer is by printing enough pages per month and buying the ink through them. It is a “give away the handle and sell the razor blades” method of marketing which works since I’m going to print those pages anyways for our brochures, invoices, order forms and other materials. The print quality is excellent. Since it is a solid wax ink the prints don’t run if they get wet or handled making it ideal or brochures. In addition to getting the printer for free they also provide real live human telephone technical support and on-site repairs which we’ve needed a couple of times for the printer – both free with the program.
You can get a free Phaser 8560DN and Xerox will give me a $200 referral credit if you enter my referral code 732517 when you sign up. Entering the referral code costs you nothing extra and gives me a credit for buy supplies.
By the way, on the left of the fridge is the mystery question item of last March’s post – a shelf carved out of a 2×10 plank for our bowls, plates, cutting boards, garlic, onions and various other kitchen items. A little bit of wood working in our otherwise hard edged masonry and stone cottage.
